Select EDWinXP Schematic netlist for the “Import parameter” → Format
Browse and select the required project file whose schematic is to be generated. It’s optional to
choose the ‘Part Dictionary name’. Click on Import
After importing the wrs file, the wrs file as well as the import log file will be generated. These are
given in the below two images (Fig 2 and fig 3)
After the import is completed, invoke the Schematic Editor. You can view the components are
generated and will be stacked at the middle of the page. This is as given below (fig 4)
Inorder to place the components in the Schematic Editor , you can autoplace the components
using the Autoplace option. This function can be accessed from Tools → Autoplace. Before
autoplacing, the Placement parameters and Design rules has to be set first which can be
accessed from Autoplace parameters → Display parameters
For that invoke display parameters and select ‘Placement Rules’and set the parameters as
given in the image below (fig 5)
After giving all the necessary input to the Value, click on Apply button so that all the parameters
Then select ‘Placement Parameters’ → Autoplace and then set the values as given in the
below image (fig 6). We are following the Topological placement of components. Hence set the
Sequence as given
Pre-place at start - only ‘input’ side components
Autoplace remaining components - attempting to follow signal flow
Then select Autoplace all components (fifth function tool) → Autoplace topologically
Click on Yes to proceed with the autoplacing. The autoplaced components will be distributed in
the schematic as shown below (fig 8).
For autorouting of the components, select Tools → Connections → Connect Components (first
function tool) → Autoconnect all wires (F6) (sixth option tool) (fig 9).
Choose Select All check box to select all the nets. Then click Apply → Close (Fig 9).
The circuit will be autorouted as in the given image below (fig 10).
